Your Bottomless Mimosa of Stupid

Whatever you think of the Starbucks race initiative, this Ayn Rand idiot Jonathan Hoenig (Greed is Good: The Capitalist Pig Guide to Investing) is exactly why America needs to discuss race:

“Eric, there is no discussion needed on race. I resent this whole idea that America is this racist country, that we somehow have to remedy through chit-chat at Starbucks.”

“Stop identifying by your race. You’re not responsible for things that came before you, and you’re not entitled to things that came before you.”

“There’s no discussion needed on race in this country, the ones who want the discussion, in my opinion, are the racists.”

“Michelle, you know it works. There are a number of mainstream media outlets who try to make people on the political right look like crazy people.”

Nothing like exploiting toddlers for political points and 15-minutes of Fox Fame.

Fox News: Minitrue without the doublethink

Bill-OTiger Beat on the Potomac (Thanks Charlie!) has this lead story:

Fox News has the most trusted network and cable news coverage in the United States, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Monday. But network TV is much less trustworthy than it was in the days of Walter Cronkite, American voters say.

In comparison rankings, 29 percent responded that they trust Fox News the most. CNN follows with 22 percent, CBS News and NBC News are at 10 percent, ABC News at 8 percent and MSNBC at 7 percent.

And while some might find this alarming, I am reminded that right before the fall of the Soviet Union, Pravda had similar approval ratings. It’s Baghdad Bob revisited.

That Brian Williams is disappeared in shame from NBC and History’s Greatest Reporter Bill-O (on Fox) continues to have fab rating for lying to people in their face seems like asymmetrical truthiness warfare at first, but this article on Raw Story over the weekend offers us a glimpse inside the BS Mountain that is Fox News. Ex-Fox News host Eric Burns said:

“The extreme right… they never had their own television station. When they got one, their appreciation, their audience loyalty — and I know what the audience loyalty was like when I was there — their audience loyalty soared. And so O’Reilly as the head of the cult is not held to the same standards as Brian Williams.”

“No one expects much out of O’Reilly as a Fox News host,” Burns continued. “No one expects the truth. He’s been caught in numerous lies, and those have never been a story.”

“To the Fox News cult, this kind of thing doesn’t matter. It’s a lie from the liberal media.”

So an ex-Fox guy says that the viewership is a cult (not Fox itself, and I think that is an important distinction), and as we’ve all said here for a long time, the objective truth doesn’t matter to Wingnuttia, Y’all Qaeda, and the Confederacy. These are terrified shut-ins who want their worst fears confirmed, their prejudices praised as brilliant insight, and their absolute dogmatic beliefs endorsed. And Fox News delivers. Right to their bunker.

The Morning Quote

“I thought Netanyahu’s speech was necessary, it was masterful, it was cogent, it was honest, it was inspiring.”

“And the Democrats in response — including the president — acted like snitty, bitchy high school girls.”

–Fox News strategic analyst Heather Chandler Ralph Peters.

Let The Crusades Begin!


…and an idiot shall lead them:

You know, one might conclude that ISIS wants a Holy War declared, and also/too one might conclude that the brain trust at Fox News (the gelatinous mass known as Roger Ailes) is playing into their hands, you know, for cynical things like ratings (Rupert Murdoch is first and foremost a businessman).

The Stupid Is Strong In This One

I particularly liked that after saying that the government shouldn’t force anyone to do anything, he then said that people with infectious diseases should be forcibly quarantined.

Another Fail For Tucker Carlson

That dancing fool, hebephrenic TeeVee Dinner heir and vanity press owner Tucker Carlson shows us how light on his feet he is as the weekend host of B-Team Petunia and Pals:

Oops. His guest likes the Affordable Care Act. Tucker has nothing to say.
